Milwaukee Foot Specialists Provide Highly Effective Heel Pain Treatment
Milwaukee Podiatrist Offers Heel Pain Treatment for Heel Spurs and Plantar Fasciitis
To avoid surgery, it is imperative you visit our Milwaukee podiatrist if your heel pain persists for more than 3 weeks. Heel pain often results from overuse, such as running; however, heel pain can also be due to plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, bursitis and flat feet. Pain is generally located under or behind the heel, and includes chronic tenderness and swelling. There are a variety of heel pain treatments you can do at home to ease pain such as rest, anti-inflammatory medication (i.e. Ibuprofen), icing, stretching, investing in proper fitting shoes and buying cushioning shoe inserts or arch supports.
If you have been suffering with heel pain for more than 3 weeks, our Milwaukee foot specialists will provide you with alternative means for more advanced conditions. Depending on the severity of your condition, our Milwaukee podiatrist may advocate for custom orthoticsor physical therapy with a focus on plantar fasciitis exercises and heel spur exercises depending on your condition. When custom orthotics and physical therapy does not yield provide optimal pain relief our Milwaukee foot specialists will provide Radial Shock Wave Therapy (RSWT). This fast, gentle and non-invasive shockwave therapy is ideal for patients suffering from chronic heel pain. The Swiss DolorClast method delivers pressure waves through the skin’s surface. When these waves connect with the inflamed tissue they promote the body’s natural healing activity. In 70-80% of patients, heel pain is dramatically reduced in 6-12 months following the final treatment. There are virtually no side effects from this non-surgical heel pain treatment except for some minor tingling, warmth or numbness immediately following treatment. The Swiss DolorClast Radial Shockwave Therapy treatment method is approved by the FDA for being safe and highly effective. In rare cases, when combination heel pain treatments do not provide maximum relief, our Milwaukee podiatrist may suggest surgery.
